When you step out on that field, everything just…goes away. You forget the pain, the hot days, the thunderstorms, the long blocks. Everything just ceases to exist: except you in that stadium. It’s all about you and that crowd. Thousands of people screaming just for you. Out there, you’re finally alive. Free of all the worries and troubles of the world. All we do is about those 11 minutes. #phantomregiment #turandot #dci #drumcorps #drumcorpsinternational #stadium #performance #beingalive

i.e. anyone who's ever marched drum corps ever.

โ€œYou will never be completely at home again, because part of your heart always will be elsewhere. That is the price you pay for the richness of loving and knowing people in more than one place.โ€

Hold on to Morning.

The lot is where it’s the time to get in the zone. Focus on marching then music. Block out all other distractions from then on. This is your time to prepare for an amazing show. Nothing else matters at that moment in time besides the other members around you sounding the same and making the horns resonate. Play with your heart and the show will follow suit. #phantomregiment #pr #regiment #mellophones #dci #drumcorps #drumcorpsinternational
